"I had nothing to lose. I wasn't even a big dancer and so I was not scared of losing the competition. Everything was a plus for me, so I didn't hesitate (to participate in the show)," the 38-year-old said here.
Rahul is the son of late Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Pramod Mahajan, and married Dimpy on national TV through reality show "Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega".
The couple was in Delhi recently to search for a dancing partner for actress Karishma Tanna to feature on the show as the 12th duo.
Meanwhile, his wife Dimpy says she loves to dance. However, she didn't know if Rahul would have agreed to it.
"I like dance and I am always on the lookout for an opportunity to dance. But when we were contacted by the 'Nach Baliye' team, I was in a big doubt about whether I would be able to do it or not because Rahul generally doesn't dance. But he agreed," Dimpy said.
